World Record Attempt on PokerStars

Tags: Guinness world record, pokerstars, team pokerstars pro, world record attempt.
Posted on 14 November 2011 by "T".

It's soon time for another world record attempt by the world's largest poker site, PokerStars. The upcoming world record attempt will take place on December 4, 2011 at 12:30 EST and the aim is to create the biggest ever online tournament in poker history.

The current record was set in 2009 when 149,196 players participated in a $1 tournament that "oskar69" won for $50,000. Now PokerStars hope to break that record with a $1 buy-in tournament with a guaranteed prize pool of $250,000 + $10 bounty to whoever knocks out a member of its Team PokerStars Pro.

I don’t remember how long did it took the last world record largest tourney, but I keep thinking that doing it on a Sunday its not the best idea. I know many users work at Saturday and that could be a problem in terms of trying to reach the biggest field ever, but doing it on a Sunday, a tourney that may last around 10 to 12 hours to be cleared, it’s a bit scary for some amateurs to go along with this. Having a $1 buy-in is the best, because people will think “for so few, I wil try my luck”, but thinking it can last till Monday and keep going on… If my wife lets me, count me in!

10$? lmao they should put atleast 100$ on the pros
anyway think they'll break the record easily, hopefully winner wont lose all his winnings in 1 day like last time.

I'm not enthusiast at all about the type of huge tournaments, they really are a game of luck and don't have anything to do with real poker...

You basically need to have tons of luck to win and much less poker skills...

It's just a personal opinion.

Sometimes I see things like this and wonder why did FT have to go balls up, why could it not have been pokerstars.

Hi all

I'll play, of course.

I´ll Play even the joke of reload bonus $10 that have been learned. Hopefully FTP come back again, the monopoly of PS is horrible.

Greetings!

I love the idea of putting such a small amount of money and getting "rich" with it. The good thing is, someone WILL win it ^^ So of course I will participate, hoping to get lucky, win important races and big 3 way pots with aces Blink

I like the promo of Pokerstars very much, but the biggest problem is that the tournament will last till Monday.

PS is doing so much marketing at the moment with the billionth hands and this. The other poker sites need to react before PS takes a share of market too big Shock
 bobbyneight18/11/2011 11:26:37 GMT
I played the last world record tourney at pokerstars and mucked after a few hands. I hope this time, when I play it that I get in the money. But anyway it counts that we play it.

This is not about the tourney, but about the 10 years anniversary.

I got a mail the other day about a reloadbonus, in which one would get a buck for each point. It was quite a long time since I last played a PS, and I seemed to remember that the points did not come that easy.

Anyway, I was wrong. The max amount for the bonus was 10 $, but it was among the easier 10 $ that's out there at the moment.

I recommend. Smile

Edit: OnT, I may be playing this here tournament too, now that I got money there.

This tournament got the full 200k players registered, so it seems they broke their own record by quite a bit this year! Big Smile Shame I was going to sign up for it, but by the time I went to sign up, it was already full! I should have saved a spot earlier, I guess.
